Fortnite's crossovers are going through the roof. More and more characters from movies, TV, other video games, comics, and real-life icons are appearing in the game. In our new weekly series 'Fortnite Skins Background' we want to introduce you to one of these Fortnite characters at a time. Today it's the turn of a hitman of the finest kind: John Wick.

The John Wick skin is a legendary Fortnite outfit from the John Wick set. It was first added to the game on May 16, 2019 in Chapter 1, Season 9. The last time John Wick was available in the Fortnite Item Shop was on March 25, 2021.

Who Is John Wick?

John Wick is an American neo-noir action thriller media franchise developed by screenwriter Derek Kolstad and owned by Lionsgate. There are currently three John Wick films - with at least two more planned. John Wick is played by actor Keanu Reeves.

Wick was an orphan taken in by the Russian Tarasov mafia and raised to be a killer. He was so ruthless that mob boss Viggo Tarasov respected and feared him. At the beginning of the first film, Wick has been inactive for five years and has retired from the Tarasov mafia. However, he becomes active again in search of revenge.

The John Wick outfit in Fortnite was part of the limited-time John Wick X Fortnite event for the release of the movie John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum. The crossover included Wick's Bounty mode and added challenges for a limited time where you could unlock his One Shot glider, Gold Token back bling, and Boogeyman wrap for free.

The John Wick outfit can be purchased for 2,000 V-Bucks in the item shop. These are all the cosmetics from the John Wick set:
